Tuesday – Wednesday- Its World Maths Day on 3rd March so try to complete3-4 challenge cards a day.

Thursday – Friday – It World Book Day on 4th March so try to complete 3-4 Roald Dahl Challenge Cards


Design technology 1 – We have been thinking about why it is important to have a healthy, balanced diet. This week, make a healthy snack for yourself and your family. You could make some fruit kebabs, chop some vegetables to dip into hummus, use the recipe for carrot and courgette muffins or invent your own recipe. Maybe you could send us a photo of your creation.


Design technology 2 – Look in the kitchen for some food packets and have a look at the labels. You will find nutrition information about what the food contains, for example the amounts of fat, saturates (less healthy fat) and sugar. Can you find any with the traffic light system on the front? Use the traffic lights or the ‘Nutrition’ box on some packets to fill in the Food labels activity sheet. Remember that bacteria in our mouths like to feed on sugars on our teeth which can damage them. We should make sure that we don’t have too many sugary foods and that we brush our teeth twice a day.

Science 1 – You are going to investigate the effects of different drinks on a tooth-like substance. Instead of teeth, you will use eggs because the enamel (the hard coating) of eggs is similar to teeth. Teeth and egg enamel are both made from calcium carbonate. Choose six different drinks such as fruit juice, full sugar fizzy drink, milk, water and coffee. Pour them into six separate beakers. Find somewhere safe to keep them as they will be there for a week. Place individual eggs or eggshells into the beakers. Observe what happens to the eggshells over the week. Record what happens each day by writing or drawing on the Enamel investigation sheet or by taking photos. Did any eggshells dissolve or become stained? Can you remove any stains by brushing with toothpaste? From what you have found out, put the drinks in order from best to worst in terms of being healthy for your teeth.

Science 2 – Go through the slides on the website below to find out what the inside of your tooth looks like. Complete the quiz.




Label the parts on the Inside a tooth labelling sheet.


Well done on everything you have done at home and we look forward to seeing you back in school next week.



Week 1

Welcome to a new term and a new topic – Burps, Bottoms and Bile!


Open wide – let’s take a look inside. We’re on a voyage of discovery to investigate the busy world inside your body. Do you have a toothy grin or a winning smile? Take dental impressions and test the effects of sugary substances on your pearly whites. Follow a tasty morsel as it makes its way through your digestive system, helped by some mouthwatering saliva. And don’t forget the importance of good hygiene at both ends. And whilst we’re talking business, could you recognise an animal just by its poo? Are you brave enough to take the challenge? Make a working model of the digestive system and use it to persuade others to eat healthily. Learn how to look after this marvellous belching, squelching, mixture making machine we call our body.

Let’s get started! Read the knowledge organiser then choose at least one of the activities from this sheet to do every afternoon.
